Description
Clematis 'Star of India' is a vigorous, strong growing variety. Each sepal of the rich purple blooms bears a distinctive carmine-red bar, often with a pointed tip which gives the flowers a delightful star shape. This late large flowered clematis is at its best when grown in partial shade as persistent sun tends to fade its vibrant colours. This striking cultivar is particularly easy to maintain as it can be cut back to almost ground level each year. A great choice for beginners and perfect for covering part shaded walls and fences. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1m (3'). Pruning group: 3.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
When planting clematis, choose a position in sun or semi-shade and plant the climber deeply in moist, fertile, well drained soil. Position the top of the rootball at a depth of 7.5cm (3") below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Clematis dislike soils that are particularly wet or dry. Such soils can be improved by the addition of plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. When growing clematis in patio containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Train clematis plants onto a suitable support such as trellis, wires or a freestanding climbing frame.
More Info
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in late summer on the current year’s growth. Pruning should be undertaken in spring before active growth begins. When pruning group 3 Clematis, cut back all of the previous years stems to a pair of healthy buds at around 20cm (8") above ground level. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in order to protect the roots and conserve soil moisture.
